Follow the guidelines (15/26)

Different websites have different rules for pitching your idea. Some may want you to submit a completed article in the body of your email. Others may ask for two or three possible headlines and a brief description of what each post would be about. And some may ask for specific subject lines. 

Follow the guidelines exactly, because this demonstrates that you are a professional who is easy to work with, pays attention to details, and understands the website and its audience. Many websites have filters set up that weed out pitches that don’t follow the site’s guidelines and your article may never be seen.
